Phuture Phillies 2020 Reader Poll for the Phillies #33 Prospect

Josh Stephen was selected as the organization’s #32 prospect.  He received 42 of the 120 votes cast (35%).   Andrew Schultz finished second with 27 votes (23%).  Addison Russ and David Parkinson received 11 votes each.

Colton Eastman and Gunner Mayer received 6 votes each.  Bailey Falter and Juan Aparicio received 5 votes each.  Victor Santos and Rixon Wingrove received 2 votes each. Zach Warren, Brandon Ramey, Brett Schulze, and Alexis Azuaje received one vote each.

I plan on running through a 35th poll.  Maybe to a 40th.  Depending on how the Phillies’ season goes, more than a couple guys might get a call up.  Bohm and Howard are considered locks.  (Shoot, a Bryant trade would certainly cost Bohm.)  Plus a number of pitchers are poised to receive call ups if needed, whether due to poor performance or another rash of injuries – Romero, Jones, De Los Santos, Llovera, Brogdon, Sanchez, Irvin, Leftwich, Seabold, Medina.  (In which case, I’ll likely add a few more names to the poll.)

Poll results will remain hidden.

  1. Hi
    I love your posts!!
    How do you think my nephew Taylor Lehman is doing?
    Any chance he would be an option for the list?

  2. Man, you guys really dropped Kyle Dohy like he was hot. Addison Russ is low-to-mid 90s right? Why the love for him? I voted Schultz here.

    1. I voted for Schultz. The excitement about Russ is two-fold. First, he has an effective splitter, which can be a game-changer for a reliever, Second, there is some evidence that he’s turned a corner as he struck out 12.9 batter per 9 innings in Reading, which isn’t too shabby for the hitter-friendly Eastern League, and had a good ERA.

    2. Whoa hold up I didn’t even realize we didn’t vote Dohy in yet….that’s a pretty big oversight. He proably should be in the area of Leftwich or Vierling.

      Yikes thats bad.

        1. I don’t mean that as we have to do what he does word for word. Only that it isn’t that big of an oversight.

      1. DMAR……Dohy is the second coming of Mitch Williams…..he makes you pull your hair.
        He will strike out the first two guys….then throw 8 straight low and away balls, all sliders, to the next two guys. It was maddening watching him last season at LHV…..I had to rationalize and say it was the new ball adjustment for him.
        if he can even get a tick or two more control, then he could be something else.
        He does not need to worry about command, his stuff is that good…just get it somewhere in the zone.

  3. Relief pitchers are so hard to predict. Many get an appearance or few in the bigs but there are so many and guys who were starters in MILB end up in same boat. It’s hard to rank them as prospects. Dint think leaving them off a top 30 is a big oversight unless you can’t find Enough SP and position guys to

    1. I think it has to do with the system not being considered deep with prospects. We have a small handful of great prospects and a lot of prospects of similar good but not exceptional skills.

      He has pretty good BB9 and K9, but lacks velocity on his fastball. That probably has something to do with it.
